Slanted seats in minivans

We may be getting an Odyssey with our tax refund. Every van I've been in has super slanted seats. Does anyone find this a problem with installing...like do you always have to use pool noodles?

I have only needed a noodle with a RF scenera in our old van (dodge grand caravan, middle bench seat), to get a good recline angle. For more upright the noodle wasn't needed. And I didn't need anything with the Radian (though did need the angle adjuster).

You don't need a noodle for Britax, Radian, or TrueFit. Only thing I've ever needed one for was an Evenflo Triumph Advance.

I have an 08 Odyssey.

I know the third row seats in my Ody can be adjusted to be more upright and so can the captians chairs in the middle row. I've never had any problem installing any seats.

Rolled towels & pool noodles would only be to get the 45 degree angle right?
